National Honor for Iowa Kennel, Breeder and Trainer

German Shorthair Pointer Club of America

The German Shorthair Pointer Club of America awarded Steve Ries and his dog Top Gun Jake, Alburnett, Iowa, a national award. German Shorthair Pointer Club of America Hunt Test Sire, at this year's annual event in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky on April 21st, 2007.

This honor is awarded because Top Gun Jake and his offspring have won many top level field trials across the country. The "Top Producing Hunt Test Sire of the Year Award" is a great honor and is recognized internationally.

"Having pride in the success Top Gun Kennel has achieved is far less important then meeting new friends and having time for the pure enjoyment of hunting wild birds. We never imagined growing into the business we have today when starting out looking for that first great hunting companion," says Steve Ries.

"Many first-time to experienced owners have proven their training skills at top levels with Jake's offspring and this is the real reason he earned this title. We have been fortunate to earn the trust of people who want more than a hunting dog and enjoy weekend events with standards that must be met to qualify for titles earned. This award is a milestone to our kennel and we are honored to receive such an award."

Ries traveled to Fort Mitchell Kentucky with his father Charles Ries to receive this award and told the press that this was the most enjoyable part on the entire weekend, spending quality time with his father.

Top Gun Kennel, Alburnett, is an experienced kennel that breeds, raise and trains, German Shorthaired Pointers and work with hunting enthusiasts all over the country. Many of the Top Gun Kennel dogs have won national and regional recognition. Our goal in this business is to make a positive contribution to this breed, by teaching others to train and breed better German Shorthairs, while making new Friends and many enjoyable memories.
